Work Description

Occupation explores the relationship between body and space, the transformation and information interchange generated during the process of occupying an empty space. This relationship evolves during the occupation of the territory, while the space develops a graphic memory the bodies broke apart just to emerge again. Finally, both entities become part of the same visual construction.

This piece is part of the AVD Project (FUBA, Medellín) a techno-conceptual investigation of the expressive potential of visual data within digital systems. Using code and video as main materials the registered information on any given frame varies according to movement variables defining how body and space merge.

Music: O Holy Night, CAPAC.
